So in the past couple of days I've been embarrassingly inconsistent on 200WAD. The initial day my streak got broken was a bit uncontrollable. I felt bad and took a break. Became a patron. Then I lost my two days streak to laziness...LOL

But anyways while away i got busy....

I did some personal stuffs.

I cleaned up my age long side project and put it back online. It was online before, but I was doing Digital Ocean like a rookie and i was losing > $5 every month on a website just gathering dust. So I brought down that server.

Agrojobs.co is back online. It's a site that will, starting this week, aggregate agriculture related jobs. Agriculture is a big deal here, so i'll start with Nigeria then Africa.

Then I did put up another side project online. FavLists (favlists.xyz). How do i explain it? Okay. Think of it like a public bookmark sharing page. You'd be able to share your frequently recommended internet resources on a page something like favlists.xyz/@username. I'll open it for registration in the coming days.

Then of course my portfolio, seunoyebode.com. It's online, but under construction.

All three built with Laravel and hosted on a $5 Digital Ocean Droplet.

By the way I'm glad to be back. 

Hope to make the most of the next 147 days.

      @abrahamKim Haha.

      Your Spotlight was one of the first things I read this morning. I loved it.
      I want to deliberately read your writings more 1) because each time I read it I'm reminded how much I'm missing 2) I have in an idea I want to build in that niche. Something like Netflix for Web novels.

      Wow that is a compliment that is worth more than a trillion likes :) :)

      I've been ideating exactly what you mentioned for awhile now. Here are two experimental projects I kind of spun off awhile back which led me to wanting to have a netflix of web-stories.



      You're into laravel. THat makes me happy cause perhaps we might soon be writing code together

      Good stuff. I like joelpeven.com in particular. I think the idea of a web novel in the form of back and forth emails is ingenious. Nice designs too.

      Yeah yeah, I'm into Laravel

      Lol what you use for frontend ? Vue?

      btw... whats your hosting solution for laravel? Do you use Forge?

      Yeah Vue

      Digital Ocean.
      Haven't tried Forge, but I believe with my experience using Git and Digital Ocean, Forge won't be difficult.

      Forge actually makes it so much easier for me.

      Lol I never configure nginx/database/php anymore.

      I'm now thinking about vapor... but it sounds so scary to not have my own server...

      but I think in future serverless will be more what I want.

      Please, i want to be sure of this... When I buy a plan on Forge I DO NOT need to buy a droplet of digital ocean again right?

      haha you do

      actually it's bring your own vps

      forge simply does the setting up of vps's for you.

      so you'll still need that digital ocean droplet.
